This groundbreaking "modern vintage" head brings the sound quality of all-tube heads into a super practical and ultrareliable package.

The Markbass Randy Jackson Signature TTE 500 500W Tube Bass Amp Head is best described as œModern Vintage, which may seem to be an oxymoron, but it sums up the unique new TTE 500 well. Current technology is brought together with classic tone concepts in a head that looks and sounds vintage”but features some special adaptations of the innovations that put the Markbass on the map. The classic sound comes from an old-style tube preamp, a tube compressor, a simple 3-band passive EQ section, a œColor filter (a tube adaptation of the famous Markbass VLE control), and an innovative Tube Technology Emulator power amp.

The question is: modern or vintage...? Randy Jackson says "Yes. Both. Finally an amp for every sound!"
